1 Example Introduction to Programming (in C++) Loops Assume the following specification: Input: read a number N > 0 Output: write the sequence N (one number per line) Jordi Cortadella, Ricard Gavaldà, Fernando Orejas Dept. of Computer Science, UPC This specification suggests some algorithm with a repetitive procedure. Syntax: The while statement while ( condition ) statement; (the condition must return a Boolean value) Semantics: Similar to the repetition of an if statement The condition is evaluated: If true, the statement is executed and the control returns to the while statement again. If false, the while statement terminates. Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 2 Write the numbers 1 N // Input: read a number N > 0 // Output: write the numbers 1...N (one per line) int N; cin >> N; int i = 1; while (i <= N) { // The numbers 1..i-1 have been written cout << i << endl; i = i + 1; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 3 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 4

2 Product of two numbers A quick algorithm for the product //Input: read two non-negative numbers x and y //Output: write the product x y // Constraint: do not use the operator // The algorithm calculates the sum x+x+x+ +x (y times) int x, y; cin >> x >> y; // Let x=a, y=b int p = 0; // Invariant: A B = p + x y while (y > 0) { p = p + x; y = y 1; cout << p << endl; Let p be the product x y Observation If y is even, p = (x 2) (y/2) If y is odd, p = x (y-1) + x and (y-1) becomes even Example: = 646 x y p Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 5 A quick algorithm for the product Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 6 Why is the quick product interesting? int x, y; cin >> x >> y; // Let x=a, y=b int p = 0; // Invariant: A B = p + x y while (y > 0) { if (y%2 == 0) { x = x 2; y = y/2; else { p = p + x; y = y 1; cout << p << endl; x y p Most computers have a multiply instruction in their machine language. The operations x 2 and y/2 can be implemented as 1-bit left and right shifts, respectively. So, the multiplication can be implemented with shift and add operations. The quick product algorithm is the basis for hardware implementations of multipliers and mimics the paper-and-pencil method learned at school (but using base 2). Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 7 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 8

3 Quick product in binary: example Counting a s 77 x 41 = x We want to read a text represented as a sequence of characters that ends with. We want to calculate the number of occurrences of the letter a We can assume that the text always has at least one character (the last. ) Example: the text Programming in C++ is amazingly easy!. has 4 a s Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 9 Counting a s // Input: sequence of characters that ends with. // Output: number of times a appears in the // sequence char c; cin >> c; int count = 0; // Inv: count is the number of a s in the visited // prefix of the sequence. c contains the next // non-visited character while (c!=. ) { if (c == a ) count = count + 1; cin >> c; cout << count << endl; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 10 Counting digits We want to read a non-negative integer and count the number of digits (in radix 10) in its textual representation. Examples digits digits 8 1 digit 0 1 digit (note this special case) Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 11 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 12

4 Counting digits Euclid s algorithm for gcd // Input: a non-negative number N // Output: number of digits in N (0 has 1 digit) int N; cin >> N; int ndigits = 0; // Inv: ndigits contains the number of digits in the // tail of the number, N contains the remaining // part (head) of the number while (N > 9) { ndigits = ndigits + 1; N = N/10; // extracts one digit cout << ndigits + 1 << endl; Properties gcd(a,a)=a If a > b, then gcd(a,b) = gcd(a-b,b) Example a b gcd (114, 42) Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 13 Euclid s algorithm for gcd // Input: read two positive numbers (a and b) // Output: write gcd(a,b) int a, b; cin >> a >> b; // Let a=a, b=b // gcd(a,b) = gcd(a,b) while (a!= b) { if (a > b) a = a b; else b = b a; cout << a << endl; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 14 Faster Euclid s algorithm for gcd Properties gcd(a, 0)=a If b > 0 then gcd(a, b) = gcd(b, a mod b) Example a b Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 15 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 16

5 Faster Euclid s algorithm for gcd // Input: read two positive numbers (a and b) // Output: write gcd(a,b) int a, b; cin >> a >> b; // Let a=a, b=b // gcd(a,b) = gcd(a,b) while (b!= 0) { int r = a%b; a = b; b = r; // Guarantees b < a (loop termination) cout << a << endl; Efficiency of Euclid s algorithm How many iterations will Euclid s algorithm need to calculate gcd(a,b) in the worst case (assume a > b)? Subtraction version: a iterations (consider gcd(1000,1)) Modulo version: 5 d(b) iterations, where d(b) is the number of digits of b represented in base 10 (proof by Gabriel Lamé, 1844) Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 17 Solving a problem several times In many cases, we might be interested in solving the same problem for several input data. Example: calculate the gcd of several pairs of natural numbers. Input Output Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 18 Solving a problem several times // Input: several pairs of natural numbers at the input // Output: the gcd of each pair of numbers written at the output int a, b; // Inv: the gcd of all previous pairs have been // calculated and written at the output while (cin >> a >> b) { // A new pair of numbers from the input while (b!= 0) { int r = a%b; a = Calculate b; gcd(a,b) and b = r; write the result into cout cout << a << endl; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 19 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 20

6 Solving a problem several times Prime number // Input: several pairs of natural numbers at the input // Output: the gcd of each pair of numbers written at the output int a, b; // Inv: the gcd of all previous pairs have been // calculated and written at the output while (cin >> a >> b) { // A new pair of numbers from the input while (b!= 0) { int r = a%b; a = b; b = r; cout << a << endl; A prime number is a natural number that has exactly two distinct divisors: 1 and itself. (Comment: 1 is not prime) Write a program that reads a natural number (N) and tells whether it is prime or not. Algorithm: try all potential divisors from 2 to N-1 and check whether the remainder is zero. Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 21 Prime number // Input: read a natural number N>0 // Output: write is prime or is not prime depending on // the primality of the number int N; cin >> N; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 22 Prime number Observation: as soon as a divisor is found, there is no need to check divisibility with the rest of the divisors. int divisor = 2; bool is_prime = (N!= 1); // 1 is not prime, 2 is prime, the rest enter the loop (assume prime) // is_prime is true while a divisor is not found // and becomes false as soon as the first divisor is found while (divisor < N) { if (N%divisor == 0) is_prime = false; divisor = divisor + 1; if (is_prime) cout << is prime << endl; else cout << is not prime << endl; However, the algorithm tries all potential divisors from 2 to N-1. Improvement: stop the iteration when a divisor is found. Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 23 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 24

7 Prime number Prime number: doing it faster // Input: read a natural number N>0 // Output: write is prime or is not prime depending on // the primality of the number int N; cin >> N; If N is not prime, we can find two numbers, a and b, such that: N = a b, with 1 < a b <N int divisor = 2; bool is_prime = (N!= 1); and with the following property: a N while (is_prime and divisor < N) { is_prime = N%divisor!= 0; divisor = divisor + 1; if (is_prime) cout << is prime << endl; else cout << is not prime << endl; There is no need to find divisors up to N-1. We can stop much earlier. Note: a N is equivalent to a 2 N Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 25 Prime number: doing it faster // Input: read a natural number N>0 // Output: write is prime or is not prime depending on // the primality of the number Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 26 Iterations Is there any real difference? int N; cin >> N; int divisor = 2; bool is_prime = (N!= 1); while (is_prime and divisor divisor <= N) { is_prime = N%divisor!= 0; divisor = divisor + 1; if (is_prime) cout << is prime << endl; else cout << is not prime << endl; Number of bits Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 27 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 28

8 In real time (N= ) The for statement > time prime_slow < number is prime u 0.004s 0: % > time prime_fast < number is prime 0.004u 0.000s 0: % Very often we encounter loops of the form: i = N; while (i <= M) { do_something; i = i + 1; This can be rewritten as: for (i = N; i <= M; i = i + 1) { do_something; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 29 In general The for statement for ( S_init ; condition ; S_iter ) S_body ; is equivalent to: S_init; while ( condition ) { S_body ; S_iter ; Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 30 Writing the numbers in an interval // Input: read two integer numbers, N and M, // such that N <= M. // Output: write all the integer numbers in the // interval [N,M] int N, M; cin >> N >> M; for (int i = N; i <= M; ++i) cout << i << endl; Variable declared within the scope of the loop Autoincrement operator Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 31 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 32

9 Calculate x y Drawing a triangle // Input: read two integer numbers, x and y, such that y >= 0 // Output: write x y int x, y; cin >> x >> y; int p = 1; for (int i = 0; i < y; ++i) p = p x; cout << p << endl; Given a number n (e.g. n = 6), we want to draw this triangle: * ** *** **** ***** ****** Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 33 Drawing a triangle // Input: read a number n > 0 // Output: write a triangle of size n Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 34 Perfect numbers A number n > 0 is perfect if it is equal to the sum of all its divisors except itself. int n; cin >> n; // Inv: the rows 1..i-1 have been written for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) { // Inv: written j-1 times in row i for (int j = 1; j <= i; ++j) cout << ; cout << endl; Examples 6 is a perfect number (1+2+3 = 6) 12 is not a perfect number ( ) Strategy Keep adding divisors until the sum exceeds the number or there are no more divisors. Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 35 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 36

10 Perfect numbers Perfect numbers // Input: read a number n > 0 // Output: write a message indicating // whether it is perfect or not int n; cin >> n; Would the program work using the following loop condition? while (d <= n/2 and sum < n) int sum = 0, d = 1; // Inv: sum is the sum of all divisors until d-1 while (d <= n/2 and sum <= n) { if (n%d == 0) sum += d; d = d + 1; if (sum == n) cout << is perfect << endl; else cout << is not perfect << endl; Can we design a more efficient version without checking all the divisors until n/2? Clue: consider the most efficient version of the program to check whether a number is prime. Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 37 Introduction to Programming Dept. CS, UPC 38
